Digit-al Dozen Does Wool/Copper; Day 3

I'm running a bit behind but this is my day 3 mani for Digit-al Dozen wool/copper challenge!  Here's what I came up with!

Started with a base of two coats of KBShimmer Run It's The Coppers, no top coat.

Added a coat of KBShimmer Clearly on Top.

After making a stamper decal using Delaney Automne 001, applied to pinky.  Stamped image from UberChic UC Lovely Leaves on thumb, Chez Delaney Halloween 004 on index, Lesly LS-21, and UberChic UC Halloween 04.  Stamping polihses used were MdU 2, 8, 9, 11, 22, 48 and 53.  Also added some hand painting on the index and middle finger. 

Topped with KBShimmer Clearly on Top to finish.

Thanks for looking!

Note regarding the thumb image:  I have used this image a few times now; it is one of my all time fall favourite images to use.  In the past, I have dotted the plate with the different colours, scraped and then stamped whatever the affect of the scrap is but I find the colours really intermingle and aren't as nice as they could be.  I usually go back and dot in the the 'leaves' with the individual colours as it is rarely the look I'm going for.  For this mani, I did a couple dots of yellow for example, scraped and stamped.  Then cleaned the plate, did a couple dots of red in different locations on the plate different than the yellow, scraped and stamped.  And so on for all the colours.  The end result was clear colours intermingled well for the fall leaves.  I never thought of this until this year but I like the end result a lot more than in past years so we will using this method going forward.  Hopefully it will help someone else out!
